"Sorry, Ubuntu 13.04 has experienced an internal error" Arghh!!

Are you annoyed with "Sorry, Ubuntu 13.04 has experienced an internal error" message? I know I am! Tried reporting the program expecting a fix or least know what the error, that it keeps warning us about, is. But it doesn't work.

Apport, with what I have known, is a debugging tool used to generate crash reports. I don't know why it's enabled by default, but its pop-ups are really getting annoying. Here's how you can disable it. It is not the best solution I would recommend but I am atleast going to do this for now.

Open up the "default" folder located in /etc and edit the apport file:
sudo gedit /etc/default/apport
Change the enable to '0' to disable it.

Now, stop the apport service from running state. To do this just type:
sudo service apport stop
This will stop apport from runnig completely.

To run it back again you can start the service by:
sudo service apport start
To start it permanently, just edit the file /etc/default/apport and enable it.


  1. don't you have the same command copied and pasted thrice?

    1. my bad, I guess there was a bug on my "Code Display" script. I have removed it for now, have a look.
